The Story of OSHA (1980)

This film tells workers how OSHA was set up to stem the tide of disease, injury, and death, and what their rights are under the law. Explains how NIOSH conducts tests, how standards are set, and how OSHA investigates complaints. Produced and distributed by OSHA in 1980. Then in 1981, the incoming head of OSHA Thorne Auchter recalled and destroyed most copies. A few copies were kept alive by renegade union officials who refused to return their copies. The penalty for being discovered in possession of one of these films was loosing all OSHA funding for their safety and health programs.

There are 3 films in this series: The Story of OSHA | Worker to Worker | Can't Take No More

This film was preserved through the years through the efforts of Mark Catlin, who made this and other censored OSHA films available for digitizing.

Subject: A must See
OSHA has been around since 1970, many of the younger workers and management representatives need to watch this video so as to get a better understanding of OSHA, the Why, the When and the How the Act was passed. Very good film
